Roundabout Theatre Company's 2013-14 Season of Plays Announced: Roger Rees in THE WINSLOW BOY, World Premiere Play CUTIE AND BEAR and More!
Roundabout Theatre Company has announced its 2013-14 season of plays. Each season, Roundabout offers revivals of classic plays and musicals as well as development and production of new works by established playwrights and emerging writers.
The 2013-14 season will include:
THE WINSLOW BOY
Tony Award winner Roger Rees (Indiscretions, 'The West Wing') stars in a new production of the classic play by Terence Rattigan, directed by Olivier Award-winner Lindsay Posner (the West End's Noises Off and Carousel). A "moving exploration of family devotion, The Winslow Boy beautifully illustrates the costs of unconditional love and the rewards that make the effort priceless."
DINNER WITH FRIENDS
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this highly celebrated play by Donald Margulies (Time Stands Still) comes to Roundabout with direction by Tony Award nominee Pam MacKinnon (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Clybourne Park). Described as wryly funny and richly layered, Dinner with Friends is a modern masterpiece about two couples who do everything together, until one marriage unexpectedly crumbles and their lives veer in opposite directions. This show will play Broadway's American Airlines Theatre.
THE REAL THING
The Real Thing returns to Broadway in a "stirring and sensual new production helmed by critically acclaimed director Sam Gold (Roundabout's Picnic, Seminar). Delectably witty and deeply affecting, this Tony Award-winning play by Tom Stoppard (The Coast of Utopia, Arcadia) takes a daring glimpse at relationships, fidelity, and the passions that often blur our perception of love." This show will play Broadway's American Airlines Theatre.
The uproarious family feuding continues as Roundabout Underground's world premiere hit comedy Bad Jews moves upstairs to the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. Daniel Aukin (4000 Miles) directs the full original cast in Joshua Harmon's play about the holy and the holier-than-thou.
CUTIE AND BEAR
In this "incisive and surprising" world premiere, a married man and financially strapped young woman begin a purely uncomplicated relationship that becomes anything but. Evan Cabnet (Roundabout's The Dream of the Burning Boy) directs Bekah Brunstetter's (Oohrah!) stunning new play about the choices we make that change our lives in ways we never expected.
Roundabout Theatre Company's 2012-2013 season featured The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Rupert Holmes, directed by Scott Ellis; The Big Knife by Clifford Odets, with Bobby Cannavale, directed by Doug Hughes; Talley's Folly by Lanford Wilson, directed by Michael Wilson; The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin by Steven Levenson, directed by Scott Ellis.
The season will also include two additional shows, including Roundabout's annual musical. For more information, visit roundabouttheatre.org.
